Tha Alkaholiks Firewater
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Waxploitation-Koch
No one‘s ever accused Tha ‘Liks of being overly conscious, and this, their fifth and last album, certainly won‘t be the disc that changes any preconceived notions. Hip-hop‘s gleeful hedonists sign off with the signature style that‘s kept them popular since their 1993 debut; this one‘s a boozy collection of party tracks with an undercurrent of intelligence and wit. Tha Alkaholiks revel in their reputation, as evidenced by referencing their self-proclaimed "West Coast sip-hop" on "Chaos." Any guesses as to what "Party Ya Ass Off" is about? The party might be ending, but it‘s not over quite yet.
